Planned/Estate Giving

An enduring gift, a lasting legacy

Planned GivingMore people than ever are making Gleaners—and the fight against hunger—a part of their long-term plans. As a result, more of our friends are also benefiting from life-income gifts, gift annuities and other plans.

Thank you for thinking about becoming one of them.

From annuities to bequests to memorials and more, there are almost as many ways to make a planned gift as there are needs to be met. You can even bequeath a significant gift, ensuring that the fight continues beyond your lifetime.

For additional information, or to arrange a planned/estate gift account, contact David Moore, Chief Advancement Officer, at (317) 829-1772. Or e-mail him at dmoore@gleaners.org.
